About the book

Book Cover of Illuminae

The year is 2575, and two rival mega-corporations are at war over a planet that's little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it.

After Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light—a boy she swore she'd never speak to again. With an enemy warship in hot pursuit, Kady and Ezra are forced to fight their way onto the evacuating fleet.
